Joyful Ornament

Hi Angels!

It’s been a long 2 busy days but my one week eye check-up went great and my other check-up went well too.

I designed this card as an alternate version to the tree card I shared a couple days ago. The tree I shared as a shaker was supposed to have strips of vintage washi tape so I tried the red and white but it didn’t go with the tree. As not to waste such a pretty background, I did an ornament instead.

The ornament shape is cut from Memory Box’s Drop Ornament die. the background is Pine Forest from Catherine Pooler Designs and Joyful is CZ Designs from Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you’re listening to lots of Christmas music & enjoying the holiday festivities. Share a little holiday spirit with those around you too.

Glorious 60 Day 2 Art – Joyful Peonies

Hi Angels!

Today I am sharing my oldest daughter’s birthday card. Our ages are easy to keep track of as she just celebrated her 40th birthday and mom is celebrating 60. We celebrate our special days just about a month apart.

This came out so lovely. I used Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Peonies stamp, die & layering stencils for the beautiful floral focal point and their Essentials Classic Words die for the sentiment. The handcolored background is embossed with Memory Box Chrysanthemum Field 3-D Embossing Folder. The sequins are from the Catherine Pooler Design Williamsburg mix.

This card gave me just a wee bit of trouble as the original idea I had just wasn’t working with the pretty flowers so I may have created some extras for the infamous Bits & Pieces box. Nothing wrong with a little trial & error to achieve a pretty card, so don’t become discouraged with a project. Sometimes it’s as simple as walking away for a bit & coming back with a fresh set of eyes.

Don’t forget to comment for a chance at the prize package. I think I’ll do a mixture of products from a couple of my favorite companies.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Love & Joy

Hi Angels!

We have our last holiday card class tomorrow just before the full holiday season kicks off with Thanksgiving on Thursday.

Late at night I’ve been watching some of Kristina Werner’s 2020 Holiday Card series videos on Youtube and just loved the trifold card she made for day 2 and decided it was perfect for class.

Here is my version….

I just love the blue poinsettia paper for the background. I used Concord & 9th’s Full of Joy die & stamp set and Memory Box Poinsettia Circle Frame & Pine Needle Twigs dies. I’m thinking this Joy die will find it’s way into my Bible journaling too.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week!

Thanks for popping by.
